Thank you to our kind hosts Jill and Stuart for a warm welcome. We all had a lovely break from our busy lives. Kids enjoyed the pool and ping pong table. Everything was clean and well presented. We very much look forward to returning very soon.

About the neighborhood
Local country pubs and restaurants serve great locally sourced food and drinks. Our professional chef daughter also prepares excellent supper food delivered to you from a menu supplied when booking - always appreciated by those who choose it (halal options available). Upper Sapey Golf Course (27 holes) is at the end of our lane, a three day event course even closer, a local gym, horse riding school and fishing nearby, Shelsley Walsh hillclimb (the oldest motor racing event in the world) two villages away and the Worcestershire Way (36 miles) is on the doorstep. Children may like West Midlands Safari Park and the Severn Valley Railway. English Heritage look after Witley Court (7 miles), the remains of a vast and rambling palatial mansion with its magnificent grounds and restored fountains.... more
